Everything in this whole world
has just one thing in common.
Large or small and very light,
or weight - more than a ton.
Some are solid, some are not,
and some we hear a lot,
some are just a vision,
while others, cold or hot.
Coffee smells, alarm clocks,
computers, highway signs -
family, long vacations -
schedules, meetings, deadlines.
Tell me, what's in common here -
say, what could it be?
Cookie jars to fancy cars,
curved rainbows, scenery...
And there are many other things,
too numerous to list -
scary masks of Halloween,
to pretty morning mists.
Just ponder for a minute
the commonality -
and what effect these things have had
to others, you and me.
Just ponder for a minute,
on all these things I list -
and all else you can think of -
and all else that I've missed...
So think, I'm sure you'll get it -
if not, reread again -
for every thing is common here
for children, women, men.
But if you cannot see it yet,
the answer, if you care -
is they steal our attention and -
take time away from prayer...
